IE8 becomes very slow after some time using it. I have to restart it to become fast again. How can I solve this?
I'm using Windows XP 32-bit. I have scanned my computer with MBAM and SUPERAntiSpyware and it's clean. I don't have any toolbars installed.

Hello kep1,

Open Internet Explorer 8

1. From the Safety menu in the upper right, click Delete Browsing History.

2. Select Temporary Internet files, Cookies, and History.

3. Click Delete.

"Slow IE8"...don't you think you're being redundant? :thumbsup:

To me, the definition of IE8 = slow.

Clearing temp files, cookies, etc...will marginally help for a time....but it likely won't matter. As they say, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig. :flowers:

I would highly recommend moving to Firefox. :trumpet:

Close IE.
Go Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools, and click on Internet Explorer (no add-ons). Same thing?
